A former presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, Nicolas Felix, on Tuesday said the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will appoint only talented people into his cabinet after taking the oath of office on May 29.

Felix, who spoke in an interview on Arise Television on Tuesday, noted that Tinubu’s appointment would be based on competency and not party affiliations.

He noted that every Nigerian matters, regardless of their political party, adding that Tinubu had said he would build a government of national unity.

He said, “Asiwaju is a man that rewards loyalty, he rewards hard work, there are also Nigerians out there who are not members of our party who are also talented and experienced and capable.

“He is going to also look beyond his APC and start picking those who are out there. But I am also very sure as he has stretched his hands of fellowship to say “I want to build a government of national unity, If you are in PDP, If you are in Labour Party, you are in other parties, we are all Nigerians.”

He urged Nigerians to join hands with Tinubu to make Nigeria work again.

“When a president is elected, what is expected of every patriotic Nigerian is to join hands with the President to work together, except you are just here for your selfish interest. If you really want the growth of Nigeria, you want Nigeria to be better. Whatever you have to offer, you have to present yourself for service.

“He has already stretched his hands of fellowship. It is up to them to accept it and join him. I am sure he is not going to be running after people, he has already said come, let’s brainstorm. As many are willing to go to Asiwaju’s door, the President-elect for them to join hands together.”
